A big bold rose is front-and-center of La Fille de Berlin, with subtle green earthy notes deepening its color to the point of something moody and almost gothic. Damp moss and honey are used with impressive inventiveness here, bringing out the cool waxen qualities of the petals while stemmy green palmarosa and bright geranium highlight the subtle spicy qualities of the rest of the flower and its leaves.
